Nothing particularly new, but a cautionary tale.
Now, I don't know if this archive manager
is in PCLOS or not, and haven't looked, but, I have
experienced something similar and it took me forever to shut things down. I was trying to build a play list in Clementine, and got the bright idea of just dragging a folder full of music files to the empty playlist. Unfortunately, it took that as a request to actually play all
of them - at once
! So the caution can still be useful....

The archive manager, the GUI frontend for various tar, zip and other archive formats, is a good and robust and safe tool, and there's nothing wrong with it, per se. However, you can easily misuse it and cause a short-term if significant disruption of productivity in your setup.
